Assemble Papers Issue 9, ‘Radical Family’, is now available all across Melbourne! (Keep your eyes peeled as we continue to add more locations in Melbourne, Sydney and other select locations across Australia.)

Reporting from a year of action and change, ‘Radical Family’ explores a generous, expanded notion of family, looking at how we actually live in order to propose better housing, architecture and cities. AP#9: Radical Family includes words, ideas and provocations from Naomi Stead, Timothy Moore, Bree Trevena, Paola Balla, Bhenji Ra, and many others.

Get down to one of our many stockists to grab your free copy of Issue 9. If you’re unable to reach any of our listed locations but would still love to read the latest print edition, please send a prepaid/stamped self-addressed envelope to: c/o Assemble Papers, 150 Langridge Street, Collingwood, Victoria, Australia 3066. We’ll direct a copy straight into your letterbox.
